|758k||The 74-gun ship-of-the-line USS Delaware, Captain Henry E. Ballard in command, "near the Western Islands, August 25, 1833 on
her passage to France with his Excellency Edward Livingston, Envoy Extraordinary and minister Plentipotentiary, from the United States to the Court of St. Cloud."
Launched in October 1820, the warship was burned, 20 April 1861 at the Norfolk Navy Yard to prevent her capture by the Confederates. A bronze replica of her figurehead
is a well-known fixture on the U. S. Naval Academy campus as the bust of Shawnee leader Tecumseh. While mounted on the ship, however, the bust was named Tamanad, the
Delaware chief who greeted William Penn on his arrival in Delaware County on 2 October 1682.
